Understanding Your Needs

Understanding what size home will be best for your family ensures you use space wisely. Determining how many rooms you need now and how many you’ll need in the future is the best place to start. Looking long term can help you build a home to last, ready to adapt to new family members or guests. From intergenerational living to growing families and home offices, having a clear understanding of the space you’ll need makes sure you select a home plan that will work well into the future. G.J. Gardner Homes offers homes from as few as three bedrooms to as many as six bedrooms, with the optional additions of adaptable multipurpose rooms.


Our home design ranges in styles, taking inspiration from various trends, lifestyles and feels. Deciding how you wish your home to look and feel can help you find the best family home for you. From the facade to the interior details and floor plan, the style of your home can serve to streamline your daily routines. With such a range of materials and finishes, you can curate a home style that’ll complement your family’s needs. If you have young children, certain materials will be easier to maintain and require less effort to care for. Alternatively, if you intend for your home to support older children or parents.


Reflecting upon your lifestyle and how your family operates can help you establish your priorities when choosing the right home design. Whether it’s an open plan living for plenty of family time or the presence of private spaces, applying how your family will use space can help you design the right home for yourself and your family. With multiple story options to outdoor living spaces, deciding what would be your prime concerns and dream features can help streamline this process.
